Really worksBefore you eat an acidic meal like pasta and meatballs for example drink 2 to as many glasses of milk before or during your meal the milk acts as a base cancelling out the acids and neutralizing your stomach in a way.

Deep breathing and heating padClose your eyes, inhale, count to 3 slow, exhale, count to 6 slowly. Do this for two minutes. Also works with a heating pad on a chest.

Eat a spoonful of mustardAny kind of mustard will neutralize the acid in your stomach. Take a spoonful of mustard and let it slide slowly down your throat, coating it (don't swallow it quickly). You'll feel immediate relief.

Coconut Oil and Raw CIder VinegarI had been on prescription acid-reflux medication for 11 years, and using this remedy have not needed a pill for about a year now. Take one tablespoon of Raw extra virgin organic coconut oil once in the morning, followed by a teaspoon or two of Raw apple cider vinegar mixed in a small glass of water. Repeat this process in the late afternoon or evening, prior to dinner. Take an extra dose of the vinegar beverage at any point throughout the day as needed or desired. The remedy can also be reduced to a teaspoon of coconut oil before each meal along with the vinegar beverage if desired or easier with your daily schedule.

Add Acid .....don't AntiacidI have found that adding pickles or pickle juice removes the acid reflux. The suggested remedy is apple cider vinegar and stomach enzymes.
I just have some tuna salad with pickles, or up my pickel intake some other way.
I was on the little purple pill for 2 years before I found this remedy. Hope it helps!

Cure for acid refluxEat slow and don't eat for three hours before bedtime. Watch the food you are eating, stay clear of all acidly food after lunch and sleep with your upper body tilted six inches.

Elevate the head of the bed to prevent acid refluxTry this...One brick placed under each bedpost at the head of the bed... Elevates your head and torso enough to prevent the reflux and you get a good nights sleep. This was recommended by my doctor... And If you like to sleep on your side...Sleep on your left side. This works for me as well.
Another thing I try to do is not to eat after
6:oo PM and certainly not within 4 hours of going to bed.
I have also had luck in the past using slippery elm...Singers and speakers often use this for sore throat as well.

Chamomile teaI find that chamomile tea, sipped throughout the day, greatly helps to keep my acid reflux at bay. This article Acid Reflux Remedies gave me the idea and also suggests peppermint and ginger as possible cures for heartburn.

Apple cider vinegarWhen you're really in agony, just swallow 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. It will burn for a second or two, but after a few minutes you'll feel much better.
Also, you can prevent acid reflux symptoms by dissolving 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water and sipping it slowly once a day.
This cure has changed my life.
